This was our second visit to this restaurant. Food was very tasty and service was good. Food quantity per dish is optimal. They have many options for both vegetarians and non-veg. Mix-veg and Paneer butter masala was very good. Dal makhani was a bit different from what you get in India but it was tasty. Veg biriyani needs to be... More

Traditional Indian food served in a nice atmosphere. We had samosas, lamb kurma, lamb rogan josh, paratha bread and mango chutney. We also had dessert - Indian rice pudding and mango ice. Service was very good. Portions were the perfect size. Nice atmosphere. Make reservations so as not to wait.

I've been at this place at least 10 times over the last year. Great Indian food cooked to perfection. Start with their papadam and ask for the spicy pickles if you can stand spicy food.

My fiancée and I stopped in last night for a warm meal on a cold and rainy day. It was fantastic -- some of the best Indian food we've had in years and certainly the best meal we had in Amsterdam. Highly recommended!

Top restaurant, good food and great atmosphere. Having done some university in holland a few years back I had given up on ever having a good curry but thanks to Trip advisor reviews, I gave it a go and yes it was grand.

The lamb chop masala was amazing! Best Indian in a long time. Did everything the standard way, but better.

Went there without a reservation and they were able to accommodate us! Ordered the mixed tandoori (lamb was the best!). Food came quickly and was delicious. Service was good through the meal until the end. The servers took our plates away and we sat there for 15 minutes. They did not ask if we wanted anything else or the bill.... More

We came in with no reservation and made space for a party of 5 nontheless. We were about to order way too much food and were advised against it by our waiter and his recommendation was on point. Great location, try it after doing the Heineken experience

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
